Can You Install A Metal Roof Over Asphalt Shingles? People have been installing additional layers on rooftops for decades – in fact, it used to be common practice and likely would have been considered wasteful in terms of time and energy not to do it.

Published recently with this quote: “As a roofing contractor, I help a lot of people select their roof color. There are so many materials and colors to choose from, you could write 100 page paper on it! In general, I usually try to establish if a house is in the brown or grey color realm (some are both, but generally most houses fit in one or the other). Then, you pick a roof color that has some contrast to the siding, but is complimentary. Don’t get too bland – for example, if the siding is beige, don’t make the roof another beige, go with a darker brown. I have general rules of thumb – white houses look great with black roofs, red brick homes look amazing with grey or even slate tones. There are many apps where you can import a photo of the house and see what it looks like with different roof types – I know GAF has one.”
